Berlin Fulltime Taijiquan

What is this intense training all about?  

We have, for some time, considered the idea of offering an intensive training course for those with an interest in seriously studying Taijiquan. We wanted to create a short but highly condensed, comprehensive instruction in our method, which has been handed down from Chen Fake, Chen Zhaokui and Chen Yu.

Therefore, from the 5th of October until the 1st of November we are offering our first full-time Taijiquan training in Berlin. The number of participants is limited, to ensure that individual instruction is always guaranteed. This deep level of traditional training can nowadays rarely be found.

Previous experience in Taijiquan is required for this advanced type of training to ensure the best results. As the course will be challenging, there will be a consultation interview beforehand to establish that it is right for you. This will also provide us with an opportunity to meet beforehand in person (or on Skype or other platforms for international guests).  


Which topics will be covered?

First form (yilu) in week 1+2, second form (erlu) in week 3+4, sitting (dazuo), applications (yongfa), supplementary strength training (qixie). In addition to general Taiji theory we will discuss overall movement principles and elaborate details. Our method is characterised as a very extensive workout which incorporates precise body mechanics (shenfa) to cultivate a multitude of holistic power methods (jin).


What can you expect?

You can look forward to a demanding workout that will challenge you physically as well as mentally. In addition, our program promises to inspire you by putting forward new ideas and impulses to provide you with many tools from our movement system which will give a solid platform for a lifetime’s training. And in addition there will be the fun of training together with other enthusiasts right in the heart of Berlin.
